CaaS: democratizing access to containers to power cloud value

Containers power cloud flexibility and portability, but over time container technology has become complex and expensive to deploy. In this podcast, David Linthicum talks with Portainer.io CEO Neil Cresswell about how Portainer enables Containers-as-a-Service (CaaS) to democratize access to container technology by centralizing container configuration, management, and security. With CaaS, companies can gain the benefits of container technology without having to navigate all of its complexity. 


There has to be realistic expectations that we can operate [containers] with less or the same costs that we’re doing now with some of the on-premise systems.

Neil Cresswell is the CEO and Co-Founder of Portainer.io, the New Zealand-based provider of “Containers-as-a-Service” to organizations worldwide. He is dedicated to enabling businesses to successfully adopt containers as part of their transition from legacy to cloud.

Innovation is key to cloud success. The Cloud Native Computing Foundation has made it their mission to fuel innovation through leveraging the power of open-source to make cloud ubiquitous.
